I'd heard so much about Cava and finally decided to try it. The four of us were seated at a very small table. We started off with cocktails. I will say that my Dirty Vodka Martini was one of the best that I ever had. The others had wine. We ordered an antipasto appetizer to share and had move things... More

The hostess was very friendly and all of the food came out in a timely manner. The server paid attention to everything we needed and even made some good recommendations for dinner. Dessert tray is showed after dinner and I had a hard time deciding which dessert to choose.

Had a wonderful birthday dinner. This place really dresses up for the holidays and is a MUST visit. The quarters can be tight here so if your claustrophobic.. maybe it was due the wedding reception next door? Not inexpensive but certainly don't feel I am not getting value. Great menu and presentation and the look is a treat, especially for... More

My first visit at Cava was a few years ago, admiring and being awed by the beautiful decorations. Cava offers an extensive menu, from modern inspired dishes, to homemade Italian classics. If you are looking for an elegant atmosphere, delicious food, and impeccable service, I highly recommend Cava.

This restaurant came highly recommended by the hotel receptionist. Menu had a great selection and the portions are very generous. Dinner and Dessert was delicious! The only issue that I came across was not having a reservation because the place was packed on a Tuesday, but they were able to seat me in 15 minutes.

Went out to cava in February after seeing it on the news. I ordered the New York Strip and it was cooked perfectly and a huge portion with some mashed potatoes and asparagus. Our server was very attentive and friendly. Would suggest to anyone thinking about trying it.

I highly recommend this restaurant any time of year but especially around Christmas time. You can't imagine the decorations they put up for the holidays. The restaurant completely transforms into a winter wonderland and the food matches the top notch decorations.

We were a group of four, and all looking forward to a night out at a top notch, delicious restaurant. What an enormous disappointment. Our server seemed horribly preoccupied. There were two great servers right in our little room, unfortunately they were not assigned to our table. We were seated at 7:00 and did not leave until 10:00. One salad,... More

Cava has established itself as a taste of luxury. An experience of Old world charm and romance, both in its decor and cuisine. Its upscale fine dining experience caters to those looking for an evening out, a special occasion, or private events. The cuisine is authentic Italian, using the finest ingredients. The menu alone exceeds any expectation. The daily additions to the menu, both appetizers and entrees are prepared daily by our executive chef based on the freshest market products. Cava expresses its zest in season, both during the holidays, and on our cocktail list. There's a charm with each season, that should be brought to the table.The luxurious decor reflects the old world charm, with modern nuances. The warm feeling of home, paired with a featured glass of wine is sure to put your mind at ease. Each room has a separate serenity encompassed by different fixtures. The "Fireplace room" and it's cozy, warm candle lit atmosphere will soothe you and your guests after a long day at the office, or for a romantic evening. The "sunroom", filled with light, white linen, and paired with the right company, makes for an impressive room for a private dining, or the right place to impress that someone special. The "sunroom" serves as a private banquet room for all occasions.When the sun sets, and the lights are low the "Main DIning Room" has a grand dining table for occasions with more intimate groups. Everyone can enjoy a cocktail,or glass of wine, at the granite top bar, surrounded by dark cherry wood. There is a more casual atmosphere in the back tavern, with high top tables for a "girls night out" or just a couple appetizers while watching "the game".In addition to the dining experience, the cuisine has upscale items with aged Angus certified steaks, fresh atlantic salmon, pasta dishes, lighter fare, and authentic flavors throughout. Cava strives to leave an impression. The dining experience is that of traditional Italian, perfect for a relaxing meal. Cava is well renowned for elegant private events.
